from SAF Publishing:

Birthed in the fall-out from legendary 'Industrial' units Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV in the late Seventies/early Eighties, David Tibet's Current 93, John Balance and Peter Christopherson's Coil and Steven Stapleton's Nurse With Wound represent the real English underground in all its sexual, cultural and artistic variety. For reasons of social inadequacy, or because their work was deemed too damned perverse, decadent or mad, such artists frequently went unnoticed in their own lifetimes.

For all that, the three groups of friends have maintained a symbiotic, yet uneasy relationship with the mainstream of popular culture, even as their beliefs and practices repel them farthest from it. Their impact goes deeper than is usually acknowledged. Their early pioneering work with samplers, tape loops and electronics has been soaked up and assimilated via the fringes of dance culture and through close friends and collaborators such as Nick Cave, Bjork and Marc Almond, they retain a loose connection to contemporary pop. That said, they'd be the last people to deny that theirs remains very much a secret history. Until now.

Thanks Margot

I was at the launch of this book and got a signed copy and a free limited Current 93 cd with it. Not a bad book at all but completely stalinist in in it's removal of Douglas P from world serpent history. A proper study of those times still remains to be done.

Thank you

Thank you very much.

Also, I heavily enjoyed the Judee Sill record. I actually hunted down the double-disc of both of her records because of your post.
Imagine that, paying for music!
